Lecture on "Informatics for Remote Sensing"

The lecture on "Informatics for Remote Sensing" will be a series of lectures in the autumn term from Oct. 1 to Nov. 29 each year, which usually consists of three days / week during three weeks.

This lecture will focus on both global environmental issues using satellite data and system engineering for developing the Earth observation satellite.

This will include the basis of remote sensing techniques, the development of devices and platforms, the structure of data, and the transition of the huge amount of data, memory, processing, data search, and displaying technology, as well as examples of data analysis based on actual satellite data.
